Re: Behringer System 55

Too bad they've done CP3 A mixer. That's a typical opamp mixer. CP3 is discrete. Signal path of the Behringer mixer is totally discreet. No IC's used and only passive attenuators. Then it's not a System 55 clone as they claim, since they only ever had the CP3A mixers. They can't get their story str...

From what I've read over the years, Behringer to have enough bugs to work out of the first couple production batches that it's best to wait a while until they get it right. But that goes for a lot of other companies too...

Re: Memory Moog CEM3340

I know Doepfer's A-111 series is based on a 3340 (both the original and re-releases), I think there's at least one from another manufacturer I've seen too.

Re: How to choose the right PC for Audio Recording and Streaming

I run Reaper on a 7 year old i7-3770 chip and have thrown everything at it without it hiccuping. Only issue I really see you having is dealing with a FireWire interface on a newer PC (or even Mac), since I've heard problems with compatibility. Most live streaming software can take advantage of your ...

If it's been in storage, I wouldn't be surprised if re-seating the ridiculous number of connectors on that thing would bring it back to life.

Just checked a recent order and the 4046s have e4 printed at the top.
The first thing I thought of when reading this thread was silver oxidation/tarnish, so maybe that is actually it.

Re: Oxidized CMOS chips from Mouser

I never saw any old non-lead free IC's have this problem. Maybe it's a result of aging post-RoHS stock? Re-tinning the leads with solder is probably better than trying to clean them.

I can't imagine they are planning on making loads of these.
I think they have a set number of new old stock case parts from the original Moog factory (via Mike Bucki), and that's all they're going to make in that format.

Dotcom uses Mogami? They don’t mention it on their site.
Probably not to alienate past purchasers. Like they didn't mention when they started using Switchcraft enclosed jacks instead of the cheap Chinese open frame garbage they started out with.

Maybe they will start selling a dedicated synth effects box like Dreadbox with a real spring in it. Interesting they changed to the black and orange, I guess to differentiate from the Korg.

Is it really that much of a failure point? All this other gear with spring reverb tanks. I've never had one go bad. It sounds like an excuse to get down production costs as much as possible. Less than $2 worth of LCD screen and effects IC cost instead. Goodness knows- I mean, they're more volatile ...

You need a special tool to punch down wire into those connectors, though. They make two different kinds, and the cheap one is just about worthless. You're much better off buying them from someone else pre-made than trying to do a few DIY. https://www.te.com/usa-en/product-59803-1.html https://www.te...
